This subject contains a 3 day Compulsory Residential School.
The purpose of the residential school is to allow distance students to participate in group exercises and share experiences. This will enhance learning of subject content, but is also an end in itself as participatory and/or reflective approaches to research are part of the subject material. Students will undertake two activities necessary for the completion of an assignment. Most importantly, they will practice interview techniques on each other in a relatively safe and controlled environment. Learning sound and ethical interviewing is particularly important as many courses contain subjects which require students to undertake interviews for assessment.
